Bold Walls Display Creativity and Bring Joy to Design

POSTED ON Friday, July 21, 2023 IN Home

From a child's happy bathroom to a sleek modern Butler's Pantry, here are some of our favorite designs using bold walls.

At Bertch, we spend a fair amount of time working with some of the industry’s best interior designers. As we comb through professional photos of rooms designed by our partner dealers, we take note of up and coming trends in the design world. Lately, bold wall designs have emerged as a captivating trend that demands attention and unleashes the full potential of a space. 

Whether accomplished through stencil, decorative wall tile, or various types of wallpaper, bold patterned walls are a powerful tool to create a memorable and impactful interior. Use decorative, bold walls as an expression of individuality and a fearless embrace of color and pattern. Whether it's a vibrant hue that energizes a room or a daring wallpaper that adds depth and texture, bold walls inject personality and a sense of adventure into any living space.

Here, we  share some of our favorite examples of room designs with bold wall patterns.

Flamingo wallpaper adds a touch of whimsy to an otherwise neutral space. Against the backdrop of neutral tones, the flamingo wallpaper creates a striking contrast that not only captures attention but also infuses the space with a sense of joy and lightheartedness. The playful addition of the wallpaper offers a refreshing escape and a unique visual experience.

The powder room presents an ideal opportunity for the exploration of daring choices that diverge from the conventional design approach typically observed throughout the remainder of one's home. With its limited space and lower foot traffic, the powder room allows for more experimentation with bold colors, playful patterns, and distinctive fixtures that can make a memorable statement. Embracing unconventional design ideas in this small yet impactful space can leave a lasting impression on guests and showcase your creativity and personality.

This custom bar features backsplash tile that is the perfect mix of color and vintage design to complement the modern faucet and sleek cabinets. The combination of the backsplash tile's vibrant colors and vintage patterns gives the bar area a sense of warmth and nostalgia. The juxtaposition of these elements against the contemporary faucet and cabinets creates a unique and visually striking space that seamlessly blends modern and vintage. The thoughtful integration of the bar's design elements fosters an inviting atmosphere, making it an ideal spot for entertaining guests and enjoying relaxed evenings.

Bold wallpaper behind the vanity adds a point of interest to an otherwise neutral space.

The wallpaper's intricate design and rich hues create a luxurious ambiance, elevating the bathroom's style and sophistication. The interplay of natural light with the wallpaper's textures brings a sense of depth and dimension to the room, enhancing its overall visual appeal.
